Hello and happy Friday to everyone!
It's snowing again and it's NOT a welcome storm. We were planning to go to Montana to see our grandbabies, (their parents too of course, but that's just a nice cooincidence. :-)) Now, because of all the snow we're not sure we'll be able to go. I have the car all packed and Chloe was excited to see her bed being loaded into the car. Road trip! She know's we're either going to our daughter's house or our son's house and they both have dogs that she loves to visit with. They are just like little kids.
Anyway 12-18 inches of snow is possible on the passes this afternoon and evening and again on Sunday when we would be coming home. I'm waiting on a call back from hubby for a final decision. I took him to work at 5:00 am this morning and was going to pick him up since his workplace is on our way towards Idaho. Plan B would be that I still pick him up, but we go out to eat instead of driving 325 miles in a blizzard. I love my grandbabies, but I personally think it's just plain silly to take our lives in our hands. My son just called and told me to take a tranquilizer, have Dad drive and I'd be there before I woke up! Nice plan except I don't take any medicine I don't absolutely have to so I have no tranquilizers on hand! So I'm not sure what our weekend will have in store now.
I've done a little more sewing. I made a couple of dresses since most of my clothes are wearing out. I'm known in our circle of friends for wearing dresses almost all the time. I just find them so much more comfortable than pants. Warmer too. You can wrap your legs up in a skirt for warmth and it's kind of like covering them with a blanket. There's a pocket of air for insulation that isn't there with jeans or pants. I don't know how much more sewing of clothing I will do though. Those two plain no-frill dresses cost about $30 each for material, thread etc. I went to Walmart this morning for a few things and saw a dress that I liked much better for $20! I think I'll be checking out Walmart first from now on. Not the best quality but I can change my wardrobe a bit more often.
Here's a picture of Mt. Spokane this morning as the storm was moving in. Isn't it beautiful?
